It’s with much excitement that I unveil the official cover to the U.S. version of Sex, Bombs and Burgers. Of the various covers my book has had so far, I think this one is my favourite (click on it to get a better view):
I like it for a number of reasons. It’s not too dissimilar to the original Canadian hardcover and indeed retains the same bright yellow colour, which is pretty eye-catching. But when you look closely, you’ll see little grey circles listing some of the inventions and technologies I talk about in the book. The circles are of course interconnected with arrows, which really conveys the point of the book – that all these innovations are tied to each other and ultimately to war, porn and fast food.
The cover is thus grabby yet smart at the same time and it really captures what the book is about. Kudos to the designers at Lyons Press/Globe Pequot.
The book is scheduled for a December release in the U.S. If you want to preorder, you can do so on Amazon. Get yours today!
